Te Oro Activity Report Quarter Four 2017/2018

 

File No.: CP2018/17411

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To provide an operational update for quarter four for Te Oro, and to approve one new MoU partnership.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       The Te Oro Charter outlines the vision for the arts facility, and has three focus areas: youth, local community and creativity. Partnership is acknowledged in the Te Oro Business Plan as an important tool to help deliver on areas of activity.

3.       During quarter four, Te Oro delivered 46 programmes that responded to the three focus areas.

4.       The programmes are either commercially procured or delivered via Memorandum of Understanding agreements (MoU) with partner organizations. 

5.       During quarter four, 14 programmes were delivered by MoU partners.

6.       This report presents the Te Oro Governing Committee with the quarter four report containing full details on the operational activity delivered (Attachment A).

7.       During quarter three, staff received a partnership proposal from hip hop dance group ‘The Bradas’.

8.       Staff assessed the proposal on how closely their programmes align with the charter (Attachment B). Based on this assessment it is recommended the committee approve the partnership proposal.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Te Oro Committee of the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board:

a)      receives the quarter four Te Oro activity report;

b)      approve one new partnership to develop in 2018/2019:

i)        The Bradas

 

 

Horopaki / Context

9.       Te Oro is an arts facility owned and operated by Auckland Council and funded by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board. It is now in its third year of operation.

10.     The Te Oro Governing Committee consists of three members of the local board and three members of the local community including one mana whenua representative.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

11.     During quarter four, Te Oro delivered 46 programmes, several of which responded to multiple outcomes. Of these programmes:

·        14 were delivered by MoU partners

·        40 targeted youth (12-24 age group)

·        45 delivered on creative outcomes

·        24 were led by the local artists or community

·        25 delivered on Māori outcomes.

12.     Procured programmes are developed to deliver on the action plan goals outlined in the Te Oro Business Plan 2015–2018. Forty-six procured programmes were delivered in quarter four and responded to the three focus areas of the charter.

The partnership model

13.     The partnership model is set out in the business plan and is of strategic importance to Te Oro. It supplements procured programmes and helps to build the capacity and capability of the community. Partners utilize space in the building at low or no cost in order to deliver programmes which align with the charter. This also aligns with the Empowered Communities Approach.

14.     MoU agreements are developed with programme partners following approval from the committee. The agreements are structured so that:

·        for usage over and above what is agreed in the individual MoU, the facility agreed fees and charges rates apply (including the community rate where criteria for this lower rate is met)

·        they do not affect potential sources of revenue for the centre by making commitments only around booked hireage.

15.     During MoU negotiations, staff seek explicit agreement from partners to align their programmes to charter delivery focus areas.

2018/2019 MoU partnerships

16.     Staff signalled at the 22 June 2018 committee meeting that a new partnership approach was being assessed and would be presented at a future meeting.

17.     The proposed partnership with The Bradas hip hop dance group was assessed on how closely their programmes align with the charter. They were scored against the 21 factors across the three whāinga, or aims, of the charter:

·  young people are inspired and equipped to realize their potential

·  the centre is at the heart of the local community

·  the centre is a thriving hub of creative cultural experiences.

18.     Based on the high charter rating the partner received, staff recommend the approval of the new partnership with The Bradas which will bring the total number of active partners to 12.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe /
Local impacts and local board views

19.     The local board funds Te Oro and three members represent the local board on the Te Oro Governance Committee.

20.     The charter and business plan were designed to align with the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan and meet local board outcomes. These include:

·        creating strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate, celebrate and contribute

·        ensuring young people are engaged, heard and active in their local communities.   

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

21.     Ken Kerehoma of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and Emily Karaka of Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki were appointed to represent mana whenua on the Te Oro Committee.

22.     The importance of mana whenua to the local area is reflected in the programming at Te Oro which is designed to be inclusive and to reflect the cultural diversity of Glen Innes and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki.

23.     A diverse range of creative cultural expression is celebrated at Te Oro, including Māori and Pacific contemporary and traditional arts and celebrations. Te Oro has incorporated this principle by hosting a range of activities that meet this objective.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

MoU partnerships

24.     An opportunity cost of hiring the same space used by the proposed partnership is listed in Attachment B as a baseline value were the spaces to be hired out.

25.     Staff assessed all of the partnerships against the opportunity cost of hiring the same space to paying users.

26.     All usage of Te Oro facilities over and above what is agreed in the individual MoU is charged at the normal rate (including the community rate where criteria for this lower rate is met).

27.     MoU partnerships do not affect potential sources of revenue for the centre as the commitments are made only around booked hireage, which takes precedence.

Te Oro operations

28.     Te Oro’s mandate to provide low cost or free classes directly affects the ability of the facility to achieve the set target for the revenue from the programme of $25,000. The introduction of koha based payment has been successful, and the revenue generated has been trending upward. 

29.     There has been an increase in staffing required at Te Oro due to venue hire, delivery of shared risk partnerships, MoU programmes and more intensive events scheduled as part of the strategy to increase participant numbers of 15-19 and 20-24 year olds.

30.     Staff will continue to work to manage the staffing budget and projected spending in the staffing and operational budget.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

31.     There are no risks associated with receiving the activity report.

32.     Key risks identified in the report are below:

 

Risks

Mitigation

Not meeting entrance/other fee revenue target for FY18

·    review programmes and test assumptions on a regular basis

·    develop a balanced programme of offerings across a range of cost points including shared risk model, koha entry and fixed price entry

Not meeting venue hire revenue target for FY18

·    further develop and implement a marketing and communications plan that promotes venue booking offering

·    identify and address barriers to utilisation

·    explore the local boards community grant programme as a potential source funding for programming

Over spend of staff budget

·    evaluate use of spaces and additional staffing requirements and manage the overspend in staffing budget, by outlining how cost recovery from venue hire is accounted separately 

Intimidation of staff/public from aggressive and abusive clients

·    maintain the robust security programme developed by staff

·    implement/review and test security measures regularly

·    continue to follow proper safety protocols and procedures

Reception administration desk: health and safety issue for administration staff

·    test health and safety solutions and measure results

A programme offered by an MoU partner is cancelled due to a decline in the partner’s funding or financial position

·    monitor financial forecasts with MoU partners via quarterly meeting

Substandard performance or delivery by a partner reflects on the reputation of the centre 

·    regularly communicate clear expectations about quality and reliability of service levels

·    maintain clear separation in the marketing style of the MoU partnership programmes from procured programme

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps
